Women have no chance of being a minister in the future cabinet of Hassan Rouhani.
This was announced by Elham Aminzadeh, Rouhani’s assistant in citizens’ affairs, on July 31, 2017. She said, “Most probably, no woman is going to be as minister.”
Shahindokht Molaverdi, Rouhani’s deputy for women and family affairs, also tweeted, “I will not be undertaking the position of deputy for women’s affairs. My presence in the cabinet depends on the (Rouhani’s) decision.”
